Playtime!

I love it when my kids play together. When I found out I was pregnant with James, I was worried that it would be a long time before my kids would be able to play together because they are so little. But Beth already makes up games for them to play. And James follows Beth around like a little puppy dog. They wrestle, and luckily James has the patience of saint so far and just giggles as his big sister pounds on him, and the bigger he gets, the more turns he takes in getting a little revenge. It makes me smile when they get each other laughing. There are even times when they disappear into Beth's room for 15 or 20 minutes and just play together quietly, and sometimes not so quietly. I love it. It gives me hope that they will be great friends throughout their lives. I always felt like I missed out just a little bit because I didn't have any close siblings. I am so glad my kids have that. It really is a little something special.

Here are a few other pictures I thought were cute from recent days.
James has started "kissing"
